Action of the Day

Acain started the day fourth in chips but struck lightening early on as he chipped up in a multi-way pot against Isidro Martinez and Christian Taylor. He then continued his run up the leaderboard as he eliminated Sridhar Sangannagari in 11th, Yavine Brewer in 10th and Isidro Martinez in ninth propelling his stack to the chip lead.

Taylor regained his lead when they were down to three-handed, but Acain soon turned the tables on Taylor as he won a massive flip for his tournament life with ace-jack with one diamond against king-ten on a ten-high all diamond board.

The big moment came when Acain shoved into Kingery's aces with ace-three off but went runner-runner flush to score the victory. "I got so lucky on that one. I knew he got me when he snap called. Poker god is with me"
